Jimi Alfaro, Recruiting Manager, Zoosk
“Zoosk was a start-up taking online dating by storm, and rapid company growth saw the site quickly outgrew its free ATS platform. Recognizing the need to ensure company culture by encouraging employees to refer like-minded contacts, Zoosk turned to Jobvite’s complete ATS solution for the social web. Thanks to Jobvite Hire, Zoosk has increased its employee referrals because of its integration with social media.”

Jennifer Mesiano, IT Manager, Walton Signage
“Walton Signage needed a reliable and affordable way to automate and calculate sales tax and enhance the way in which orders and jobs are tracked. Senior management and the IT department worked closely on these projects as they shared a common goal of obtaining an effective and customizable project management tool to meet growth objectives. The solution was the next generation Epicor ERP (version 9.05) to ensure accuracy and reliability Walton Signage desires, and eliminate labor intensive and error prone manual efforts.”
